[Lazarus] How to move installed component package sources?

I have installed a custom component package on the palette of Lazarus.
Now I realize that I did it the wrong way since the package sources
are inside a project tree of many apps and other things.

I want to have the sources moved to my Lazarus installation into the
config dir below lazarus like for instance packages retrieved from
OLPM are.

Is there a simpler way to redirect Lazarus for the package location or
do I have to this:
- Uninstall the component package
- Rebuild Lazarus without the package
- Install the package based on sources in the right place
- Rebuild Lazarus again to include the package

It takes a really long time to build Lazarus on these machines so I'd
rather not do that if at all possible...
I have Lazarus on several machines (Windows, Linux)...
